Art Week DIY: This Yarn Wall Hanging Is Easy AF

I considered doing a whole host of different DIY projects for Art Week, but in the end, I stayed true to my passion for fiber art and went with a DIY yarn wall hanging, a few examples of which are above. As regular readers know, I weave tapestries on the side and have amassed a huge stockpile of yarn. I am really passionate about weaving, but a lot of time and effort goes into making even a small woven tapestry — I’m talking, oh, at least five hours, and that’s if you have experience — plus, buying a loom is a bit of a commitment. So I wanted to try making a wall hanging that had the same general sort of ’70s artsy-craftsy vibe, minus all the effort. And seriously, this DIY is it.

In total, making my finished piece (which you’ll see on the last slide of this gallery) took me a grand total of, oh, an hour, and I was stoned and watching “The Wiz” at the same time, so you could probably pull it off in 45 minutes. Also, I would like to draw your attention to that fact that people are selling wall hangings exactly like this — not any more complicated or detailed — for FUCKLOADS on Etsy. So, you know, if you have a good time making this, you might have a side business opportunity, just saying. [Oleander & Palm]
